Reports and Expert Opinions in Building


The expert reports of the parties are freely requested by the parties in litigation or not, independently, while the judicial expert opinions are requested by appointment from the Court itself, from a list of Judicial Experts drawn up by the Official College of Surveyors, Architects Valencia Building Technicians and Engineers.

The expert report is a means of proof and is thus regulated by law. It is a very specific means of proof, because the means of proof in essence tend to prove facts, to bring facts to the judicial file, and the expert opinion does not attend so much to contribute facts to the file, but to contribute knowledge to analyze and to assess the facts that are already in the court records.

When a report is made as expert evidence for a judicial proceeding, it is called an Expert Report.

Models of expert reports and classes

The most frequently used documents are:

  • Certificates. This document, which is normally short, is required before innumerable administrative procedures so that a certain organization - administration has proof of a certain and concrete fact, under the responsibility of the signing technician. (The example would be the energy certificate of a house )

  • Technical reports. The action of any technician will consist exclusively of making a detailed and objective technical description of the matter under examination, refraining from commenting or any judgment or drawing any type of conclusion. (The example would be the evaluation reports of the IEE buildings )

  • Opinions. It is usually commissioned by an authority in order to obtain clear criteria to be able to decide on the subject in question. It is therefore a document similar to the Report in which the technician, after observing the elements under study, will proceed to analyze and prosecute them, establishing hypotheses, until obtaining personal technical conclusions.

  • Expertise. The Opinion or Expertise are actually synonymous, although there is a tendency to refer to this document as Expertise when the Opinion report is requested by a judge, in view of a lawsuit.
